Style Hong Kong promotes fashion talent across Asia

May '10
Three celebrated Hong Kong fashion designers – Lu Lu Cheung, Hidy Ng and Henry Lau – presented their latest fall/winter collections at the Grand Show Hall of the Shanghai Fashion Centre.

The show was part of the Shanghai International Fashion Culture Festival and Shanghai Fashion Week, which celebrate the opening of Expo 2010 Shanghai. The events include a fashion carnival, “Asian Fashion Blooming of Shanghai – Special Present for 2010 Shanghai Expo,” 13-16 May, which promotes fashion talent across Asia.

The Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC) was invited to organise Hong Kong's fashion show, “Style Hong Kong.”

John Tsang, the Financial Secretary of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) Government, was guest of honour at the show.

Financial Secretary John Tsang welcomes the Shanghai audience to the fall/winter collections of three prominent Hong Kong designers.

Hong Kong designer Lu Lu Cheung's collection is inspired by volcanic eruptions – of lava, granite and smog. The designs are meant to reflect the strength, confidence and gentleness of contemporary city women.

Hidy Ng's “Stars Sparkle Tonight” collection showcases images of sophisticated women at work in a glamorous Hong Kong environment. The designs include three unconventional wedding gowns.

Henry Lau's “Frozen Beauty” collection portrays the cool beauty of Hong Kong's Central District after dark. Mr Lau's collection includes party and evening wear in black and a range of dark colours, with shiny accessories depicting Hong Kong's glamorous nightlife.

During Shanghai Expo, the HKSAR will stage a series of exhibitions, seminars and performances in Shanghai to promote Hong Kong design and brands. Organised by the Hong Kong Design Centre, the “Hong Kong: Creative Ecologies – Business, Living, Creativity” exhibition opens tomorrow, 15 May, and runs until 31 October. The event consists of a series of exhibitions and programmes showcasing the innovation, competitive edge and multicultural and entrepreneurial spirit of Hong Kong designers.

Organised by the HKTDC, “Style Hong Kong” Show will be staged 15-19 October at Century Plaza on Nanjing Road. The exhibition will feature innovative Hong Kong design and premium products. Winning pieces from the Fashion World Talent Awards will be on display, and Hong Kong-style performances will be staged.

In October, the Hong Kong Fashion Designers' Association will stage a fashion show under the theme “Fashion Visionaries?Hong Kong,” followed by a three-week “Fashion Visionaries Exhibition,” which will include “Fashion Creations” and “Fashion in Movies.” Outfits created by designers at the show will present the history and development of Hong Kong fashion since the 1960s.
